At least one more player will be punching in his ticket to the APT Philippines 2010 main event this weekend as Resorts World Manila holds its third RWM Satellite Series Event on Sunday.

The Php 500,000 guaranteed RWM Satellite Series Event #3 will be held at Resorts World Manila’s poker room on Sunday, July 25 at 2:00 pm. Players will be able to join for Php 5,000 while RWM regulars can exchange 5,000 player points for entry.

A mega satellite to the RWM Satellite Series #3 will be held the day before at 2:00 pm at a buy-in of Php 500 (with optional one rebuy and one add-on) and no registration fee.

The winner of this Sunday's tournament will join Ray Serion and Win Carlos, who won the first two RWM Satellite Series Event. The last one proved very popular as 128 players showed up to break the guaranteed prize pool of Php 640,000. Carlos eventually landed the top spot in that event, winning Php 86,000 in cash and seat to the APT Philippines 2010 main event.

Php 25/50 cash games will be available to all players on Sunday. The minimum cash game stakes at the Resorts World Manila poker room are typically Php 50/100.

Eighteen winners will be receiving cash prizes, with the winner of the tournament receiving an APT Philippines 2010 main event seat and at least Php 40,000 in cash.

In addition, players who finish second all the way to fifth will be awarded seats to the final event of the Satellite Series.

The final event, entitled the RWM Satellite Series Finale, will take place on August 21 at RWM for a buy-in of Php 10,000 + Php 1,000.

APT Philippines 2010 will be held from August 23 to 29 at the Resorts World Manila complex in Manila, Philippines. Buy-in is set at approximately US $2,500 + US $200.

Last year’s main event in Manila was won by local poker pro Neil Arce, who was awarded US $185,000 for finishing first.
